"A new campaign has begun," said one of the Cluj-Napoca team members. "Let us unite to praise God together!"

The volunteers are already thanking God for the many blessings received during the campaign ? for those who came to watch ? for those who joined the prayers ? and especially those who brought warm food!

(And for international flavor, one sign seen at the vigil was in French!)

"Someone asked us how much we're paid to get out in the street," said one of the local leaders.

Well, obviously, no one is being paid to pray for an end to abortion!

However, the volunteer said they're at the vigil because they have two debts to pay: "One is to the Heavenly Father, as thanks for the gift of our lives. The second is to our younger brothers and sisters, who do not have a voice to defend themselves from injustice."

And as always, it will help to have more volunteers for the remainder of the campaign. "See you tomorrow," the Cluj-Napoca leader said, "same time, same place!"
